We are delighted to announce that The Faraday Institute will shortly be publishing The Isaac Newton Guide Book, which will contain the text of the Faraday-sponsored play ‘Let Newton Be!’ together with eight specially commissioned essays about Newton by experts in the field, all lavishly illustrated in colour with 86 photos.
The Isaac Newton Guide Book features a preface by Stephen Hawking and is endorsed by, among others, Lord Martin Rees FRS, until recently Master of Trinity College at Cambridge, who comments: “Trinity College was pleased to host the opening performances of Let Newton Be! as part of the 800th anniversary celebrations of the University of Cambridge.
It is good to now see the text of the play made available to a wider audience, together with newly commissioned essays that shed new light on this complex and brilliant figure from the history of science”.
The book also comes with an introduction by playwright Craig Baxter, and a DVD of the Menagerie Theatre Company production. Details on how to purchase the book will appear in due course on the Faraday website. It will be on sale via the Faraday online Shop for the discounted price of £15.00 which includes the DVD film of the play.
